Al-Mart General Store is located in the historic Silverheels building at 11 South Main Street downtown Alma, Colorado est. 1873. Sitting at 10,578 feet above sea level, Alma is the highest incorporated town in the United States. The Silverheels building was built in 1896, its history spanning from the early dance hall days to the famous Molly McDuff Bakery of the 1990s.
Cory Kritzmire and Mark January shared their Al-Mart General Store dream for years before they brought it life in Fall 2007. They visualized a place where locals and visitors can buy the things they need for daily on this side of the Continental Divide. Alma has a rich community of skiers, snowboarders, bikers (of all kinds), fly fishers, musicians, boaters, artists, and miners, to name a few. Our store mirrors our diverse Mountain spirit alive in their store. Providing Alma with a megamart alternative supports our diverse Mountain Spirit.
